NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) once again has got clear majority over all the parties in the Indian capital New Delhi and won Delhi state election leading in 66 seats in the 70-seat state assembly, with Modi s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on just three.
“But it s very scary, the kind of support the people of Delhi have extended and the mandate we have been given, I appeal to the AAP workers and leaders not to be arrogant,”
After apologizing this month for leaving voters without an elected government for a year, Kejriwal was the star of the election campaign, outshining a former policewoman who was the BJP’s pick for chief minister.
“Kejriwal represents pure hard work, dedication. He focuses on doing the ground work first, not just making tall claims,” school basketball coach Sukhdarshan Singh said.
Poulomi Gupta, a 36-year-old accountant, said Kejriwal was a “hero” for the common man.
“It is not about money or fame for him. He has put everything on the line for people like you and me and everyone else here,” he said.
The BJP has won three state polls since May and could share power following a fourth, mostly on the back of Modi’s popularity.
States are allocated seats in the upper house, where the BJP lacks a majority.
